Barone Does A 180 On Immigration

Posted by PrestoPundit on 11/06/2007

Michael Barone now admits it’s not about racism is about forged documents, an unsecured border, illegal behavior, etc., etc. The question is, Mike how’d you ever get so out of touch with the American people?

A Failed Presidency

Posted by PrestoPundit on 08/14/2007

The Bush Administration can’t even get 70 miles of border fence built — a rather pathetic goal to begin with.

Homeland Security

Posted by PrestoPundit on 07/02/2007

The disgrace of the Bush Administration:

One of the negative consequences of the Department of Homeland Security’s push for shamnesty is its shrinking credibility. From the dog-and-pony show raids before shamnesty hit the Senate floor to the smearing of opponents during the legislative debate to the inaction of “emergency” border security appropriations after the bill’s defeat, DHS and its chief Michael Chertoff have abandoned principled enforcement of immigration laws for cynical, open-borders politicking.

We won’t forget the frenetic smear campaign that Chertoff waged against principled opponents of the Bush-Kennedy immigration disaster. We won’t forget that while global jihad marched on, Secretary Chertoff was more worried about the availability of cheap lettuce pickers than about terrorist operatives slipping past our air, land, and sea borders.

Is Your Senator As Well Informed As a Radio Talk Show Host?

Posted by PrestoPundit on 06/27/2007

If the topic is the Kennedy-Bush amnesty bill, the answer is very likely no.

We already know that the White House has its information all wrong about the amnesty bill. Now we’re learning that most of the various Senators have very little knowledge of what they are voting on. Pathetic.

Let The Terror Strikes Begin

Posted by PrestoPundit on 06/26/2007

Bush’s self-described amnesty plan is headed for passage in the Senate.

I feel terribly sad for every American who has sent a loved one abroad to die for a President and Congress who have not and will not secure the country from terror attack — and are happily replacing them on the job and in the the voting booth with uneducated, low-wage foreigners, including gang members, convicted criminals, terror suspects, and drug runners.
